Get In The Mix 2022
Last year, we all enjoyed the amazing WAATBP grand finale hosted by RNB HouseParty. The virtual concert was such a vibe, we wanted to make sure to bring back even more energy for this year's performance … only this time in person!
WAATBP Premium Ticket Holders get to closeout the conference with a bang, as the RNB HouseParty crew returns with their brand of nostalgia. Food and beverages will also be on hand — but only in New York, and only with a Premium Ticket. You don’t want to miss it!
